Release notes for v5x (unofficial release)

Release notes for v5c (August 7, 2022)

Update: This version was revised on October 5 due to an error with the HLS/m3u8 (not working). It was trying to load a file which doesn't exist though it does exist on my system. Sorry about that but nobody complained (as usual).

Release notes for v5b (March 25, 2022)

VidNode has changed its domain again (it is now, although will redirect to it. I read on TorrentFreak ( that the domain was being targeted by the usual "copyright" defenders so I guess VidNode is playing hard to catch (kek). Also, an encryption algo was added to the process of extracting the video link. Stuff like this has yet to defeat me though I admit that it can be tiresome to deal with. In the case of VidNode, it is worth the effort. Hopefully, I won't need to update again anytime soon.

There was a small change to the way the video link is handled with the US Internet TV trio (,, There is an interesting story behind this and which is now, redirecting from the previous domain Yeah, it can be tricky to keep up with these domain changes but that's the game that has to be played. I still don't get how the TV trio seems like a protected group though. Anyway, some months ago the TV trio changed their sites to use encryption for the video link, presumably to guard against the Kodi addons that were stealing from I cracked the encryption but it looks like the Kodi addons got stopped dead. I'm only guessing, of course. The encryption stayed in place for several months and then it got dropped (shortly before the last Alleycat update). The video link is now in the clear with no protection. Why? Also, the TV trio has been vacillating about forcing VPN access to some of the channels. For a while, the sites were unusable and I had to grab TV links from other sites. Now, it's just a handful of channels other than the sports channels that are VPN-restricted. The encryption on has been in place for over a year and hasn't changed at all. However, for a period of two or three months, they added the Google Invisible Captcha to the encryption process and I couldn't crack it for a few reasons which have nothing to do with the encryption itself. Why was it dropped? Google stopped it or maybe they couldn't justify paying Google for the captcha account. Anyway, things appear to be pretty stable right now. I managed to restore the sports channels ( died) by going through which doesn't use any method to protect the video links. It's been that way for several months so I guess it'll be staying that way (knock on wood).

Some search sites to get video links from:

Internet TV  --  TV Guide:

Go to the Movie viewer, select a TV stack and press the button for the desired channel. That's it. All channels are m3u8 live streams and most are not region locked. Some channels require an initial lookup (thus requiring a CORS proxy or unblocker) to find the direct stream URL. Such URLs are temporary and will time out (anywhere from a few hours to two days). Alleycat Player will refresh the link after two hours.

Some channels have two stream sources. This is indicated with a plus sign (+) after the channel name. A double-plus indicates that the streams are from different local stations. Select "webm" in the format panel to access the secondary channel.

Internet Radio

Simply go to the bottom of the page and press a radio button to play the Internet Radio. That's it. For your convenience, the radio will pause when you play a video. Press the Clear button to unpause. You can also open a radio station in a popup window.

You can input your own URL for either an mp4 or an mp3 or whatever your browser supports. To play a YouTube video in audio-only mode, just enter the 11-character video id.

To find some radio station URLs, you can use the AudioRealm DIG tool supplied with the Movie viewer. Also supplied is a stack with links to iHeartRadio and Virtual DJ. These will pop up a window with an embedded web site.
